Poldark Series Four will air in the UK earlier than last year according to Aidan Turner.

In an interview with the Radio Times at the Covers Party last night he said it would return, “Sooner rather than later, I imagine. I think it’s probably a different time to last year, it’s probably earlier from what I can gather. They need to finish post production and all of those sorts of things so that’s when I step out.”

He also confirmed that a fifth series has been green lit saying,“Definitely we’re going to do season five, we’re going to shoot the fifth one. After that, I don’t know. We’ll have to see how it all goes, but definitely for five. It’s kind of one step at a time.”

Aidan was at the Radio Times Covers Party to collect the award for the Poldark cover along with writer Debbie Horsfield, executive producer Karen Thrussell and Aunt Agatha herself, Caroline Blakiston. It was great to see stills photographer Robert Viglasky there as well, as he produces the photographs for so many fine covers. Here are some pictures from the night.

'The Angry Tide' Cover Revealed

Poldark, The Angry Tide, cover, Drake, Morwenna

Here is a first look at the new edition of The Angry Tide, with Drake (Harry Richardson) and Morwenna (Ellise Chappell) gracing the cover.

The Angry Tide is the seventh book in Winston Graham's Poldark series and makes up the story for series four of the television drama along with parts of The Four Swans not covered in series three. Filming on Poldark S4 has just wrapped and the show is expected to air later this year.

The book synopsis says:
Cornwall, towards the end of the 18th century. Ross Poldark sits for the borough of Truro as Member of Parliament - his time divided between London and Cornwall, his heart divided about his wife, Demelza.
His old feud with George Warleggan still flares - as does the illicit love between Morwenna and Drake, Demelza's brother.
Before the new century dawns, George and Ross will be drawn together by a loss greater than their rivalry - and Morwenna and Drake by a tragedy that brings them hope . . .

The Angry Tide is published by Panmacmillan and will be available from 19 April, 2018, price £7.99.
